Before the show began, Grohl sang a phrase, "I've got a hankering for something, think I'm in the mood for some hot man-muffins."

The band then stopped across the street in front of Kansas City's Sprint Centre where the protesters were raising their signs. The scene quickly attracted a crowd of people who mostly cheered at the band. In the middle of the song, Grohl said, "Ladies and gentlemen, God bless America! Land of the free, home of the brave! I don't care if you're black or white or purple or green, whether you're Pennsylvanian or Transylvanian, or , it takes all kinds."

The Westboro Baptists jeered at them throughout the performance but did nothing further because police were present. They planned to picket Foo Fighters's show because the band promoted "fornication, adultery, idolatry and fags."
